April 11, 2013|By

Police have evacuated a section of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s office at City Hall because of a suspicious package.

According to mayoral spokesman Peter Sanders, an employee in the mayor’s office alerted officers after he opened a letter that contained a white powder.

Police evacuated a section of the third floor of City Hall, where the mayor’s office is located, in order to investigate, he said.

Villaraigosa was in the office at the time the letter was opened but left for a meeting shortly afterward, Sanders said.
